Serrano Mayo Sauce

Before I share today's recipe, I just want to say thank you.. thank you to all the men and women who have and are still serving in this countries military.  Saying thank you doesn't even seem to be enough - but it is all this little humble girl from the Midwest can do.  I am honored to have known at least a few of you.... especially my dad!!  Each year I tell him how much I appreciate what he did while he served and this year I feel exactly the same.  I love and adore my father and know that he sacrificed a lot to serve this country.  So, thank you, first and foremost to my father (I love you dad!!!) and my new father-in-law, but of course, I send a huge thanks to all of you out there who have ever served!!

As for the recipe... well, my friends, it's a spicy little sauce that will go with just about any piece of chicken, fish or shrimp - this is yet another one you could literally just eat with a spoon!!!

Looks great, Jenn. But how did you know that I raise Carmens, Poblanos, Anaheims, Cayenne, and Jalapenos. LOL

BTW, I've got a 4-day-4-soap Christmas Giveaway going on now through Thursday. Hope you'll stop in.

Usually I am not a fan of mayo sauce, but I like the spicy kick in this one.
